Hi, total newby here. I got most of my machine built after some false starts, a computer that wanted to crash constantly, doing things and then un-doing them because I did it wrong (wrong placement) or missed a step. I may have a functional machine tonight and will have a go at cutting the 1st final sled.
Anyway, has anyone looked at using a manual router lift for the Z-Axis? The only reason I’m asking is because I bought one with a router table years ago. I don’t use the router table these days and since I have it why not re-purpose it. My concerns it that there may not be enough torque on the Z-axis motor to turn the smaller tread lead screw. Mine currently has a Bosch router body.
FWIW I’m going to be using the Rigid 2900 to start with.
I’d like to put in a pic and I don’t see an option to do so.
